Lex Veldhuis Ecstatic at Ajax Win
It’s been a week or two to remember for Lex RaSZi Veldhuis for a few reasons
Hailing from North London, Luke Schwartz spent the early part of his poker career as just another online grinder. By 2009 however, Schwartz had begun playing some of the highest stakes available on Full Tilt, and was competing against the best. Playing under the screen name ‘__FullFlush1__’, Schwartz won big against players such as Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and the Dang brothers.
Schwartz was one of the big winners on Full Tilt in early 2009, banking $1,200,000 in February alone. Schwartz has also entertained online fans with his trash talk, not showing any respect to some of the game’s most respected players. For example Schwartz has told Patrik Antonius on Full Tilt chat “prob not the best idea to play the best in the world when you’re tired full stop”, and has informed Dwan “im the new guy now and everytime we play im gonna own your life”.
While Schwartz can back up his smack talk with his play on the virtual felt, it was this kind of behaviour that earned him a lifetime chat-box ban at Full Tilt, disappointing railbirds everywhere. Schwartz’s online success in 2009 led to his participation in the television series Late Night Poker and Party Poker Premier League IV.
Although he finished 8th in the Late Night Poker Finals, he performed with success in the Premier League, losing heads-up to David Benyamine for $200,000. These performances helped to show that Schwartz is not just an online specialist, he can also compete against some of the best live players aswell.
